Whisky Reviews for Benromach 10-year-old
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.33 points
- A really good standard, which shows that Benromach is not just talking about distilling an old school malt, but that it succeeds.
In my opinion, Benromach is still completely underrated.
The typical light smoke of Benromach flows first into the nose. This is followed by very interesting flavors of meat, bacon, nutmeg and mashed potatoes. That's pretty old school. The nose is rounded off by a hay note.
The taste is dominated by grassy notes, tea, lemon and oak. The smoke is barely noticeable.
The finish is medium in length, with flavors of English orange marmalade and a newly lit fireplace fueled with beech wood.
- This is premium whisky at entry level price.
First a sweet sherry note, then some distinct peat smoke. They marry well together over delicate oak.
Leather and shoe polish mix with orange zest.
This is sophisticated and complex for a 10YO.
Bold rich body. The smoke is there, but not as peaty as the nose implies. Moist tobacco and dark chocolate. Rich sherry and a pinch of nutmeg. Very well ballanced. This is yummie.
Medium ++ lenght, ever so slightly drying.
Oaky sherry with the peat note making a light return.
